Iron Man

Me and C went to see Iron Man last night and it was absolutely brilliant. One of the best superhero flicks I’ve seen in ages apart from Batman Begins. For what is roughly a 2 hour film it actually feels a lot longer, you get a good feel for the characters and I have to say the casting was fab! There’s a great mix of humour, action and seriousness. It was.. hmm i want to say great again, but I’ve already used that word.. lets see.. it was fun being able to watch Stark build his Iron Man costume, specially as he tried to figure out the flying part, a painful process! Plus his helper robots were awesome and dare I say cute! 😛

Also if you haven’t seen it yet then you must stay till the end credits! Highlight the section below for a mini spoiler:

Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury is going to be so awesome! I mean its Samuel L Jackson! 😀

Also it looks like they are going to be doing a Thor and a Captain America movie.. so after that I’m betting we have some kind of Avengers movie.. although they will have to be careful they don’t have toooo many superheroes in that, it’ll get too confusing. C was reading through the first bit of his Marvel Superhero encyclopaedia and almost every Marvel superhero has been in the Avengers at one point of other.

Some people in the cinema were really low on their Geek points. At the end of the movie they were going

“Cool, if they have an Avengers movie they’ll have the awesome superheroes like Iron Man, Wolverine, (lists a few others) Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman.. (continues listing superheroes)”

Now hang on a sec and back up .. Batman? Superman? Wonder Woman? Aquaman? *le sigh* Thats DC, not Marvel, DC. Different universes my uninformed friend.

One response to “Iron Man

  1. If you can get a hold of the Ultimates comic books, or borrow mine. THe Ultimate Universe has the Nick Fury who looks like Samuel L Jackson in it. Plus at one point the members of the Ultimates Team are having a conversation about who would p[lay them in a movie, and Nick Fury does say it has to SLJ. How awesomely awesome was that film. Marvel needs to get back all their rights and make more of their own films 🙂
